    ****************************************************************
    While processing a method annotation, a search for child
    classes that may extend the method is done. This search can
    lead to recursive annotation scanning which may update the
    list of annotations. This list update will cause a
    java.util.ConcurrentModificationException.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Annotation processing has been updated to tolerate a recursive
    annotation scan when processing a method annotation.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.21.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
